Three 2003 Grand Canyon National Park fires burned 83 plots across the park’s North Rim old-growth forests that range from open ponderosa pine groves to dense spruce–fir–aspen stands at 7,300 to 8,800 feet (2,225 to 2,682 m) elevation. Ignited by lightning, these fires were managed by the U.S. Department of the Interior (USDI) National Park Service as wildland fire use (WFU) to meet resource objectives. As outlined below, they provided an excellent opportunity to evaluate low to mixed-severity fire effects.
